All I wanted out of this film was a scant 90 minutes reprieve from the dolour of a wet February in London, and all I got was a sense of irritation and torpor.

Without the rom-com requisites of charm, chemistry, comedy and character, this doesn't even meet low expectations.

It's a consistently amusing tale thanks largely to the eminently watchable cast.

Like the rest of today's alleged comedies that are never funny, this one pretends to be hip, but lacks every semblance of intelligence and depends on the basest common instincts in the kindergarten I.Q. for laughs.

One of those films that celebrate spontaneity and risk-taking yet are so formulaic and un-risky that they strangle their own message.

A movie where love means diarrhea.
January 16, 2004
I ... laughed myself sick.

Firmly ensconced among the forgettables in Stiller's career.

Trouble is, it isn't just Polly who comes along: Lots of extraneous matter does, too.

A lighthearted, lead-footed romantic comedy of the post-Farrelly sentimental yuckfest school.

A waste of a talented cast.

Practically everyone here is a collection of tics, gimmicks and mannerisms.
January 16, 2004
You can sense the lack of imagination.
January 16, 2004
This flat romantic comedy fails to provide any reason why a spunky girl-next-door like Jennifer Aniston's character would give Ben Stiller's uptight nerd the time of day.
January 16, 2004
Recycles gags from various, more successful gross-out and romantic comedies, but without any zest or imagination.
January 16, 2004
Tame and predictable, with the gastric-distress sound-effects machine working overtime.
January 16, 2004
Something we've all seen before, far too many times, not only in its premise but also in its lame parade of scatological jokes and its sad, tired pratfalls.
January 16, 2004
Though Polly packs ample comic punch, it also demonstrates that life isn't about the safe past or the uncertain future but the journeys we make each day.
January 16, 2004
The whole thing starts out amiably enough, but then loses all momentum just as it's supposed to be lifting off.
